What a great beer. Had it as a horizontal with weegene, eugene, and hugene. I was blown away from the start with this one. Wow.
A- black as the pits of hell with a chocolate head.
S- great, really. Whisky hints with plenty of standard porter notes. There's a feel of creme brulle there (but not in the Southern Tier way).
T- so good. Lots of caramel. Not hot for an imperial.
M- smooth and easy. Not for everyday, but then neither is my ex-wife. It's a bit sharp, but mellow enough for the strong-willed.
I was pleasently surprised by this one. Must try if you can. Of course, our cute bartender, Sam, helps. She might make Bud Light worthwhile...

Served at the brewery in a small snifter. Jet black, creamy mocha surface foam, lasts after first few sips. Good retention considering the high abv.
Deep aromas of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, toasted marshmallow, dried dark fruit.
Big chocolate and caramel flavors, vanilla, oak tannin, light coffee. Creamy chewy viscous, rich and chocolatey. Nice and smooth Woodford presence, well integrated with a little bit of heat. Liquid chocolate bourbon caramel confection. A fine experience.

Served on tap at production brewery, drank it side by side with Hugene. Pours thick motor oil black, dense cocoa head with nice retention. No light passes through. The aroma is a bourbon bomb. Vanilla and oak ooze through the nose with notes of chocolate, molasses, and coffee in the background. Taste is incredibly bourbony up front and it intertwined nicely with thick malty sweetness. Notes of caramel, fudge, dark cherries come through with a sweet finish. This tastes huge, but the high abv seems well integrated. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous with mellow carbonation. Overall, this beer is huge and it is aptly named. Quite decadant!
